Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We elect MEP's to a Parliament everyone knows has little power.

Is it possible that this is feeding the strong and growing sense of helplessness and cynicism of EU citizens towards the whole concept of the EU?

No, I guess not eh?

Our governments are not elected to govern Europe (FACT), and yet that is a very large part of their job.

I guess that isn't a problem either. In fact, the EU isn't falling apart at all.
